Prosecutor wants teen accused of killing 6-year-old Grace Ross to be tried in adult court
ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. -- The St. Joseph County Prosecutor’s Office has filed a petition to waive the teen accused of killing 6-year-old Grace Ross to adult court.
The suspect, who was 14 at the time of the murder, is now 15-years-old. ABC57 has not named the suspect because his case remains in juvenile court.
The prosecutor says it filed the petition to move the case to adult court on Monday.
A hearing on the petition has not yet been scheduled.
The teen suspect has been charged with acts that would be murder if committed by an adult.
Ross was found deceased several hours after she was reported missing in March 2021. The teen allegedly admitted to killing her.
